    I took delivery of the DJI FPV kit this week. It encompassed the following items:

    DJI FPV Hub Kit for Phantom 2 Quadcopter

    DJI iOSD Mini On Screen Display

    DJI AVL58 5.8 GHz Video Link Kit

    I connected everything up according to the instructions in the Phantom 2 FPV Hub.

    I am using an Aputure 7 inch video monitor, and have attached the 5.8Ghz receiver to it.

    I can receive video on my desktop, have yet to go out side.

    What I don't see is anything from the Mini iOSD. The unit it self is blinking green, which I have read somewhere is OK.
    I did connect it up to the computer, and the Mini iOSD has the current firmware - 4.0 and the correct software, 1.06.

    I upgraded the Phantom to the latest. I was running 3.06, now I am 3.08

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Darren

    I don't have this setup myself but I know there's a little switch somewhere on the DJI FPV hub, I believe that switch is for if you're using an iOSD Mini or not... perhaps try flicking the switch see if that helps?

    I did not use the hub with a gopro /h3-3d setup. I may have done something wrong but it seems to work fine. This could be because I installed the ground station as well.

    When I installed everything, I switched the fpv board to video. I have not had a chance to try the other position, but I'll bet that fixes it.

    Thanks to you both
